    Does anyone know what weekend the class of 2014 are officially no longer plebes? Is this a big parents weekend in Annapolis for the festivities?

    Thanks.

    Sea trials are no longer open to Plebe parents. Some helo moms gawk from across the mighty Severn @ Hospital Pt., at the risk of total embarrassment to their Mid. The short answer is no. It is no longer a premier parental event, nor has it been for 3 years.

    The Herndon climb, which was totally messed up by the previous administration, will be returned as the keynote activity for Plebe parents, I'm betting. :cool: Stay tuned.

    Whistle Pig is correct Sea Trails is a closed event and your mid will want you to stay away. As to Herndon climb my mid has heard it has been cancled altogether. That said when it comes to events like Herndon, mids are usually the last to know so stay tuned for what reality is or is not for this event.

    So the Class of 2012 will be the last class to have a "real" plebe year, that includes a greased Herndon.:biggrin:

    Just kidding, folks!:wink:

    If anyone has actual facts regarding Herndon 2011 post them up. Per my mid, she has heard a strong rumor that Herdon is canceled. Again, this is a rumor.

    I'm holding all bets. There will be no quicker, easier way for a fresh Supe n Dant to gain the favor of the Brigade than to return this to its recent, honorable, past tradition. All wagers accepted.

    Judging from Supe Miller's presentation to alums several months ago, by reading between the lines, it would seem that the tradition will return in all its slippery grandeur.

    However, he did not explicitly say so. It was nothing but inferences.

    I'm inclined to agree with you - but nothing surprises me anymore.

    I'm a plebe, and from what we've been hearing, we're probably going to get Herndon greased. We're not holding our breath though.

    A plebe here also. I have heard rumors around the yard that Herndon will be well lubricated this year. Let's hope that the honorable tradition continues for the class of 2014.

    yea, let's hope ...otherwise the new Herndon so-called "record" time climb'll be about 12.3468 nano-seconds. Sadly, 2010's time'll be like Barry Bonds on steroids ...asterisked and meaningless for all time, branding these poor Mids as mere Herndon wanna-bees buzzin' about nothing.:frown::zip:

    Sadly, too many people want to be the first to post rumors and usually are distributing bad info like those above. The Herndon Climb IS taking placed and WILL be greased, on May 23rd.
    Those posting above way back in December, when I am certain no decision was even made yet....tsk tsk. IF you don't know the answer...DON'T GUESS!!

    Are you kidding me? Why are you blatantly disrespecting my class? I don't care who's decision it was, we are not "wanna-bee" anything! Our class is great, and it would greatly appreciate not being disrepected online.
